Lol in "my day" we just lined em up and raced.
So what if you "lose"? With your mods...I don't see how you could lose at a rolling speed in 3rd gear.

One of the first cars I raced when I got my M5 was a 997.1 GT3.
It was from a roll and it was only about a car length difference to about 100 mph.
We did several runs and he was upset when I would pull ahead.
The owner had also just purchased his new toy and was upset he spent 3x times than me LOL

I drove his GT3 and loved every aspect of the car.
I wasn't crazy about his GMG exhaust and the engine under 5K but EVERYTHING else was incredible.
I even liked the heavy clutch even tho my leg was slightly sore the next day.
He loved my ///M5 because of the TQ down low, he kept saying "WOW" when he would accelerate hard under 3K. :3:

mubarak, I would start in 2nd gear from around 65 kmh and go to 200 kmh or higher if safely possible.

Assuming you were stock, he didn't drive it properly. More hp and 25% lighter car is faster.

I'm not stock, I have the slightly more hp as him.
From a roll, weight isn't such a huge factor.
Seeing is believing, he couldn't believe it also.
997 GT3 does the quarter in < 12 seconds, stock M5 does it ~13. That's a big difference.

Driver(s) or mods made it close.

Get in on video. My bet will be the GT3 if he knows how to drive it.

My M5 is faster in a straight line than my 997.1 GT3 if we're above 50mph. Anything short of that and it's nearly impossible to put the power down as well as the GT3 due to weight and tires

What I find amazing in my M5 is that it is sneaky fast. I don't really feel it is that fast compared to my other cars but when I get into a pissing match with other worthy cars, I seem to always win.
